Not that the Goats dominated the match. Not by any stretch. In fact, Guzan and his defenders (including his best friend the crossbar) combined to thwart a handful of Red Bull chances, including at least two off the line. Chivas simply took advantage of what chances they had and buried them (though the miserable Conway should get an assist on the Kljestan's goal). Considering the state of that Red Bull back line (Stammler and Leitch in the middle? Shutch yo' mouth! Just talkin' bout Leitch) it's a miracle that they didn't fashion more chances.
In the end, there are really only two things of importance to take from this match.
- How did DC United lose to this steaming pile of merde? Let's all say it together now...finishing, finishing, finishing! It's sort of like real estate thing. The three most important words, you know?
- Can ESPN get any worse? Didn't they get the message from Drew Carey last week about just covering the damn game? Ugh, and then the Beckham intro. I get it already - Golden Balls is going to "save" American soccer. Whoop-dee-freakin'-do! Hey, when's he actually gonna hit a shot in anger? You also have to love the poor schmuck back at ESPN HQ stumbling over "Wan-cho-pee" and "Durby" County. And then of course, there's Stoner, but that horse has long since died and I tire of beating it anyway.
